Love ke liye kuch bhi karega! While this mad-in-love teenager did not take any unpleasant step, he decided to dress up as a woman and go to meet his girlfriend in Pardi town of Valsad in Gujrat, reported Times of India.
However, 19-year-old’s assumption that police would not check women proved wrong as the cops caught him, that too in the dead of the night.
At around 2.40am on Tuesday, police noticed someone in Punjabi dress and face covered with dupatta moving around on a moped on Bhoslapada-Pariya Road. Initially, cops did not stop the rider thinking it was a woman. But after sometime when he crossed the spot again, he was stopped for questioning.
Thinking she was a woman, cops asked ‘her’ the reason for moving around so late. As he did not speak and tried to communicate using hand gestures fearing that he would be exposed, police got more suspicious and asked the person to remove the dupatta.
“His face was also covered with mask and dupatta. He was wearing a proper Punjabi dress and it was difficult to find out that a man was wearing woman’s clothes. Under the dress, he was wearing pant and t-shirt,” said Pardi police station officials.
During questioning, he told police that he dressed up as woman to avoid being caught by the police as well as by his girlfriend’s parents.
A resident of Motiwad Fatak, the teen was booked under Indian Penal Code for violation of order issued under public notification, negligent act that can spread disease, Epidemic Diseases Act and Disaster Management Act, 2005. He was released on bail on Tuesday evening. The teen works in a a local industry.
Even as lockdown has been relaxed in most parts of Gujarat, barring the containment zones, curfew has been clamped from 7pm and 7am.
